Escape the City with a Towel

Urban Escapes is a great way to get away from the city and do outdoorsy stuff like hiking, climbing and boating. Lightload Towels is a proud sponsor. Urban Escapes Founder Maia Josebachvili says:

I brought a three-pack of lightloads with me while backpacking in the Himalayas in Nepal for a month. They were awesome! Didn’t weight a thing (which I really appreciated at 18,000 ft) and were just as effective as a regular towel. I’ll be using them again for sure!’

New Labeling Hightlights Survival Features of Lightload Towels

  • New Labeling Highlights Survival Features of Lightload TowelsDyna-E International, producers of Lightload Towels (www.ultralighttowels.com) have announced the release of a new packaging design intended to give consumers a better idea of the product’s unique survival features.

    (PRWEB) November 19, 2009 — Dyna-E International, producers of Lightload Towels, have announced the release of a new packaging design intended to give consumers a better idea of the product’s unique survival features. The new label lists several novel uses for the compact, wickable towels that fit easily into a pocket or backpack for anyone who needs to travel light. Features highlighted on the new packaging include the fact that Lightload Towels are wickable and that they are the only towels that are survival tools. They can be used as insulation against cold weather, a mask, and even a diaper.

    “We believe that the new packaging will make it easier for people to understand how versatile the product is,” said George Wheeler, (President of Dyna-E International).

    The hallmark of Lightload Towels has always been their space-saving design, versatility and light weight. According to Wheeler, these are also the first wickable towels on the market. Packaged to fit a 2-inch diameter, the towels open to a full 12” x 24” inch 30x60cm size. They weigh only ½ ounce 18 grams each and are constructed from 100% viscose, a wickable fabric that draws excess moisture from the skin keeping one from freezing in cooler weather. Lightload Towels also come in a larger “beach towel” version.

    While wickable clothing is usually quite expensive, Lightload Towels are not. They are available at a cost of around $2 each, and buyers who purchase 12 towels or more can get a 50% discount using coupon code “50 per.” Now, after years of successful sales in the United States, Lightload Towels can also be purchased in Europe on amazon.de  (Germany) and amazon.co.uk (United Kingdom). More information about this product can be found on the company’s website at ultralighttowels.com. Lightload Towels are also available in stores, online and in catalogues through retailers such as EMS , REI , Campmor

    Toronados Ultralight Backpacking Gear Review of Lightload Towels

    Toronados ultralight backpacking site did a review of the lightload Towels. ” I
    got
    to test it out on a recent backpacking trip in Ojai, California where I put it through the not-so-tough paces of drying off my wet pot after cooking a meal and mopping up some spilled water on my groundcloth.

    After arriving home, I threw the lightload towel in the washing machine and dryer with my other gear. I found the result was a much softer version of the towel…and we’re talking feathery soft. There is minimal fraying, but nothing that would affect performance. It also results in a slightly larger size — 12.5 in by 22 in,” says Toronado.

    Toronados ultralight backpacking site
    is an extension of Tornado’s Ultralight Backpacking, a website dedicated to ultralight backpacking: the pursuit of great outdoor adventures with minimal weight on your back. Here you will find trail recipes, homemade gear info, gear reviews, cool new products, and inspiring outdoor musings. Enjoy!
    Toronados
    “philosophy is to go backpacking as light as possible without eliminating important items like a toothbrush or a first aid kit. I aim toward minimalism to lighten my pack, eliminating unnecessary items and keeping everything as simple as possible. I prefer low-tech bare essentials so that my gear is able to handle the abuse of the outdoors without constant coddling or repair.

    I don’t necessarily chase after the most recent breakthrough in ultralight gear or fabrics, but rather wait for ideas to prove themselves. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to have my pack under 5 pounds, but I don’t want to break the bank, and I want my gear to be reliable.”

    Light Weight Towels: A Must Have In A Backpacking Checklist

    Light Weight Towels:
    A Must Have In A Backpacking Checklist
    If you are going for a backpacking tour, the first thing you need to consider is that the luggage to be carried should be light. At the same time, you should not be compromising on the essential things that you need to carry. As you will have a single pack on your back, you will want to carry as many things as possible in the limited amount of space available. So, while preparing your backpacking checklist, make sure that you choose the items that are lightweight but serve the same purpose as their heavier counterparts.
    While packing your backpack, you will find that one of the items that consumes a lot of space is a towel. However, you can easily avoid carrying bulky towels by switching to LightLoad ones. Whether it is a beach towel or a hand towel, there are lightload towels available that are extremely small in size and can be converted into full size towels when they have to be used. These towels are not only light in weight but also save a lot of space in your suitcase, RV or backpack. You can keep them in your pockets and still have space for your money and keys.
    This feature makes them an essential travel accessory for outdoor camping. These towels can also be used as wind scarves, fire starters, bug repellants, insulators, sun blocks, masks and strainers. To deal with emergency situations, people can also include them in their toilet kits, first aid kits, cars, boats, hunting gear, camping equipment or hiking gear. Since you will not need to buy a separate first aid cloth, wind scarf or fire starter when you use a LightLoad Towels, you also end up saving a lot of money, space and weight.
    LightLoad Towels are an indispensable part of a backpacking checklist because of their numerous advantages. Some of the major advantages that these towels have over regular cotton towels are:
    LightLoad Towels are more absorbent when compared to cotton towels.
    • These are the only full size beach towels that can fit easily into a person’s pocket.
    • These towels can be used to serve more purposes than a traditional cotton towel.
    • They are very easy to store and consume lesser space than cotton towels.
    • They can sometimes be bigger than cotton towels.
    Because these towels are extremely cost effective and cheap, they can easily be used and thrown away if you do not want to carry the extra burden of a towel once it has been soiled. If you do not want to waste them, you can wash them and reuse them for a number of times. At the end of the trip, you can discard them off so that you do not need to carry back the burden.
    You also do not need to worry about drying LightLoad Towels because after washing, they dry up very easily and quickly. It is a product which is biodegradable and does break down in the environment rapidly. The towel can also be burned or composted in a compost heap thus you do not need to worry about any after effects, once it is thrown off. All these reasons make light load towels one of the most favorable options that need to be ticked off as you prepare your backpacking checklist.
